Am găsit un comentariu interesant AICI. ESte un citat din Sir Thomas Elyot (c. 1490 – 1546), contemporan cu Thomas More, eroul unuia dintre puţinele mele filme favorite, A man for all seasons, cred că se numea în engleză.
Iată citatul introdus de autorul blogului:
Elyot describes how and why it is necessary for a ruler to understand the the concept of harmony as a metaphor for the ideal state:
…[H]e shall commend the perfect understanding of music, declaring how necessary it is for the better attaining the knowledge of a public weal, which as I before said, is made of an order of estates and degrees, and by reason thereof containeth in it a perfect harmony: which he shall afterward more perfectly understand, when he shall happen to read the books of Plato and Aristotle of public weals: wherein be written diverse examples of music and geometry. In this form may a wise and circumspect tutor adapt the pleasant science of music to a necessary and laudable purpose.
As our global economy daily deteriorates beyond the point of repair, it is time to take a long hard look at our leadership. We have been fooled into allowing non-musicians to become leaders of nations.

Interesant, chiar dacă nu cred că se va rezolva situaţia României dacă domnul Boc ia lecţii de pian, dacă domnul Băsescu va lua lecţii de ceteră sau cimpoi. Cauza este pierdută. Muzica s-a scos din şcoli.
